Beachwood Fire Department Trains for Natural Gas Emergencies

TOMS RIVER-It happened during and after Hurricane Sandy throughout the county, but how prepared are Ocean County’s fire fighters for the next natural gas fire or emergency?   Beachwood’s Volunteer Fire Department is more prepared after training last week at the Ocean County Fire Academy for just such scenarios.

On the evening of August 28, 2015, members of the Beachwood Fire Department attended advanced training on natural gas emergencies hosted by New Jersey Natural Gas at the Ocean County Fire Academy.

“We would like to thank Roger Grey and his staff from the gas company for allowing us to train with them, as well as Ocean County Fire Academy Director Ray Van Marter for facilitating this outstanding training,” the fire department said in a statement.
